Hi, Eric -- This would, I believe, represent my first communication with you as an official "friend." (Applause, applause). There have been many momentous events on the world stage since our last conversation. I would diplomatically describe them as challenging but exciting. I suspect you'd agree, but with a lot more enthusiasm, nicht wahr?

Hi Eric:

I still remember having a conversation with you at SCIP 08 in San Diego. I attended your workshop and during a break you told me how you have learnt spanish in DC.

Hii Eric,

Thanks for adding me, I have been reading some links posted in CI. I am totally impressed since wide range of people are here and very interesting topics are shared.

Welcome to St. Louis! The musician in you should love it -- it's a great town for all kinds of music. I know the jazz and classical are especially strong. And your love of wine can be indulged at tasting & classes at places like the Wine Merchant. And if the linguist in you loves other nations' foods -- not just languages, there is the International Institute's Festival of Nations the last weekend of August.

Egypt and changing units of analysis

Posted on February 2, 2011 at 10:00am 0 Comments

The political unrest in the Middle East brings up some geeky thoughts about the techniques of strategic analysis. This is not from the "Hey, you should dig megatrends!" book of the future, but direct from the canon of heavy geopolitics and game theory. E.H. Carr's realism versus… Continue

Competitive Intelligence, Government Acquisitions, and a Hallucinogenic Future

Posted on June 5, 2009 at 10:05am 4 Comments

With the bankruptcy of General Motors, our economy has finally hopped over the plane’s wing into the Twilight Zone. Not that this event was surprising to anybody with a cursory interest in money or cars - GM bet its future on the world’s endless thirst for bloated Hummers and Yukons and left quality and disruptive innovation to Asian rivals, all while locked into being America’s largest private provider of healthcare and pensions.
